The Great Canadian Chulent Cook-off

The Great Canadian Chulent Cook-offSo a friend of mine wanted me to let you all know of a really cool event that’s coming up this Thursday night at the B’nai Brith building located at 15 Hove Street (that’s one block north of Bathurst and Sheppard). It’s called the The Great Canadian Cholent Cook-Off. As for what the event will be all about, the title is very much self-explanatory: Several people make cholent, which is subsequently eaten by those who attend, and meanwhile some of those eaters will be judging which of the cholents are above the rest.

And as a person who has a strong distaste for PR, I really have to say that this event seems like a pretty cool thing worth publicizing.

The event is being organized by Project Tish, a grassroots group that organizes shabbos meals/shabbatons for high school/university student and other young adults.

While the event does have its own Facebook event page, I’ve posted below some of the vital information included on the event, which you most certainly need to know if you wanna get your cholent on this upcoming Thursday night. Missing from the info below is that the event begins at 5:30 pm and should probably go until 8 pm.

Welcome to the first annual Project Tish Great Canadian Chulent Cook-off!

Come for ALL YOU CAN EAT CHULENT or enter your own for cash and prizes! Cast your vote for who has the greatest chulent in Toronto!

The top three chulents with the most votes have their chulents submitted before an expert panel of Judges including some of the greatest chefs in Toronto, and special guest, Gail Gordon Oliver, publisher and editor of Edible Toronto magazine.

Costs for all you can eat chulent are:

For students and children – $5
For adults – $10

Or bring some friends and enter your own chulent for a tax-deductible donation of $25

(Primary ingredients are supplied; teams may be up to four people; and to receive a discounted rate, the contestant must bring ten friends to the event.)

To preorder tickets or to enter your own chulent contact Yonatan Oliver at OR

And there you have it. I will do my best to attend the event and perhaps do a follow-up article with some video/photo content on the side.
